Exporting to Quicktime gives me a file with a .mov-1 extension

I never had this problem in FCP, but yesterday when I exported the video to Quicktime, instead of a .mov extension I got a .mov-1.
The file behaved normally when I FTPed it, but it was hard to find in the destination.
Anybody knows why I would get the .mov-1 extension in the first place? Thanks.

You must have exported using quicktime conversion, and it used the most recent settings. Just change the settings. It's dead simple.

Thank you Dave. I will try it. Any reason why the Quicktime conversion settings may have changed? I always used the same procedure and this never happened.

Somebody must have used your machine without your knowledge.

That looks to me like file spanning. Did you export to a FAT32 drive? With FAT32 a file cannot be bigger than 4 gig so a larger file will span over a few clips with -1, -2 etc to indicate it is a spanned multi file. In quicktime it will play as one file but beware as all parts need to be in the same folder to play as one file.
